Aamir Khan’s brother Faissal Khan has joined the debate around groupism in Bollywood. In a recent interview with a news portal, he also revealed how Karan Johar insulted him.
Faisssal said, “There is bias and groupism in the industry. The entire world is corrupted so the industry is not as pious. Everyone looks out for themselves. If your work flops, they don’t treat you well; they don’t even look at you and it has happened to me. On my brother’s (Aamir) 50th birthday, I was looked down upon by someone, I don’t wish to take the name. But, Karan Johar acted weird with me; he put me down. He insulted me when I was trying to talk to someone and trying to disconnect with the person I was talking to.”
The 54-year-old actor and producer Faissal Khan didn’t have a shining career like his brother Aamir. He played small roles in films like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Pyaar Ka Mausam and others. He was noticed in film ‘Mela’ but that bombed at the box office and so did other films of his!
Faissal says that after the release of Mela, he believed that he will get more opportunities but nobody entertained him. He says, “I used to go to their offices but they would make me sit there. I wouldn’t get appointments with a lot of directors, so I have seen that phase also.”
Being brother of the biggest superstar and producer Aamir Khan never got him any advantage. He says, “I’d left Aamir Khan productions six years back.”
He also told, “Aamir didn’t help me financially or creatively in films at all. And, it was good because I could find my way out.”
